Nope!  I'm telling you that if you block certain types of content, then
don't expect the site to look 100% the way it was intended.  I'd rather if
you saw the typography and layout as I designed it, but have no qualms if
you want to be safe about browsing! :D

More importantly, the site continues to function fine without them (it was
designed that way).

Don't feel silly - you aren't the first to have this happen to them.  Which
leads me to looking sooner at addressing the issue...

Sorry... :(

I'm fiddling with resizing those icons right now (as well as adding other
icons to balance each link in that header navigation).

If you had a choice, what size seems to work well for you?

I can certainly play with color too.  I don't think we have an "official"
color scheme just yet for branding, but I'll see what everyone else thinks
too.

What do you do on pages that are rendering fonts small?  Everything
_should_ scale ok if you zoom the page in.  (This is not an excuse for the
small icons, just a thought).

Let's see what we can do with fiddling with sizes and colors.  I'm open to
suggestions as well! :)
